In the Wind

from Self Talk by Jonathan Burks

lyrics

the closer you get to healing the sickness
the more them demons scram and kick, yeah
I must be getting well, they’re getting down to business
I’ll be alright now, like any minute

down the alleyways and riverbanks of my youth
red wine, blue sky, green, and stumbling through
I was wild-ish, tethered to the moon
some kind of gravity always in the loop

seasons change days get longer
whatever don’t take you down, makes you stronger
I’m getting light, too feather to sit still
every frayed edge of me is caught up on that thrill

I’m in the wind
one step ahead of where I been
in the wind
never going to touch the ground again

about

Jonathan Burks Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro"

here's some pro tips:

1) Keep a scream journal. Scream into a camera or microphone at least once a day. Any word or sound will work. "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK" seems to work for me.

2) Dance for 5 minutes daily. Dance on the way to the bathroom or kitchen. Dance as ugly as you can.

3) Make funny faces. Sit in front of a mirror and get strange.
